I have had a few people ask me if I have any veggie burger recipes on Oh My Veggies and the answer is no. I have performance anxiety. Being a vegetarian food blogger, I feel like if I post a veggie burger, it needs to be the perfect veggie burger. That is a lot of pressure! Especially when other bloggers are posting veggie burgers like this:
Red Lentil Cauliflower Burger from Vegan Richa // Um yeah, how do you top that? I used piri piri in this and since that was spicier than expected, I topped it with plain cashew cream mayo instead of the Chipotle Habanero Mayo called for in the recipe. But other than that, I kept everything the same–the burger is topped with onion rings, mixed greens, roasted yellow pepper, and cilantro. It was a lot of work, but these were so worth it. When I got to the last bite, I was kind of sad because I didn’t want the deliciousness to end.
Pad Thai Salad from Appetite for Reduction // I love this book! This salad was my lunch for the week. I used kale and cabbage instead of romaine lettuce. So tasty! And if you don’t have the book, A Couple Cooks posted their own version of Pad Thai Salad this week too.
Blueberry Muffins from Williams-Sonoma // We had some eggs and some blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries to use up, so we made two batches of these and froze them. I loved the cinnamon flavor in these. And did you notice my awesome Lionel Ritchie mug?!
Yes, it is tea I’m looking for. I found this mug on Etsy last year and pinned it on Pinterest and TessaPopArt offered to send one to me. So thank you Tessa for this big, awesome, Lionel Ritchie circa 1984-emblazoned mug.
Cholula Baked Carrot Chips // This is basically the same recipe as my Curried Baked Carrot Chips, but I omitted the curry powder and added Cholula instead. Carrot chips are kind of my thing now.
Champagne Mango with 18 Rabbits Gracious Granola // I bought the surprise Earth Day Conscious Box because I have a total weakness for boxes of random things and this granola was one of those random things. Since I also have a weakness for champagne mangoes, I sprinkled some granola on top. Perfect afternoon snack! (Oh, and if you want to try out Conscious Box, now is a good time to do it–you can get a free Conscious Box if you pay shipping.)
Whole-Wheat Pasta with Brussels Sprouts and Mushrooms from Everyday Food // YUM! I doubled the amount of mushrooms and sprouts in this to make it more filling and topped it with a little porcini salt.
Mango-Orange Coconut Water Smoothie // Chris bought coconut water and then realized that he does not like coconut water. So I’ve been using it in smoothies, which luckily he does like. This one was made with a cara cara orange, a handful of frozen mango chunks, a big handful of spinach, and coconut water.
Disclosure: That link to Amazon for Appetite for Reduction? Totally an affiliate link. That means if you bought the book, I’d get a small percentage of the sale price. This helps me pay for my hosting and panda frying pans.
